The claim of academic excellence is most credible when it originates not with the school but with the organizations responsible for setting and measuring the standards. That is why the triple accreditation that Northeastern Seminary holds is so meaningful—full academic and professional accreditation from The Association of Theological Schools, Middles States Commission on Higher Education, and the New York State Education Department—the only school recognized by all three.
Other qualities nurture this excellence as well:
- Students are immersed in primary documents of the Christian faith through history
- Faculty hold both academic and ministry degrees bringing both scholarship and pastoral care to their investments with students
- The rhythm of reading, reflection and writing helps students synthesize ideas for application to ministry
